Paying for the mistakes and lies of the staff at Stratford University is something you can look forward to if you or your child applies to Stratford. I have been enrolled at the university since it was under the name of Baltimore International College, and since Stratford took over, it has been a mess.

I was dropped from a class and now I am being told it messed up my financial aid and the refund I was due. I always do my financial aid package early but the person in charge of attendance, a woman who was not only handling attendance but was school counselor has been fired.

I was sick and was among many having problems with a communications system to read and post work (a free on-line software platform called Moodle). Now, I can't get a refund because the school had me registered for only one class. I have a bill I should not have, a financial aid package that is wrong, and a school staff that does not care. How could a student who just made President's List be going through this?

If you want to be lied to, scammed, and have someone tell you they follow serve-safe rules but expect sick students to cook, then hurry on down to Stratford University.
